  APIS lifescience - Honey bee
The domestic European honey bee (Apis mellifera, family Apidae) is one of 20.000 species belonging to the superfamily of the bees (Apoidea).
She was probably first distributed in Anterior Asia where she became commercially exploited by humans and in the course of the time was spread over the whole earth.
The genus Apis mellifera forms persistent states, which consist of a queen, about 30,000 to 70,000 worker bees and up to 1,000 drones.

Apis is an invaluable acquisition to our Materia Medica.  It has a group of sharply characteristic general indications which are met with in a great variety of ailments and conditions.  This is known to the world since very long time.
The genus Apis is of European origin and is widely distributed all over the world.  Female bees are distinguished from the males by their shorter abdomen.  The female bees have only the poisonous stings.  In male, mouth parts are well developed.
Apis mellifica has a very slow action that is why it should not be changed very soon.  When there is increased flow of urine that shows a favorable effect.

  Bee - LoveToKnow 1911
Among the humble-bees (Bombus) the workers help the queen, who takes her share in the duties of the nest; the distinction between queen and workers is therefore less absolute than in the hive-bees (Apis), whose queen, relieved of all nursing and building cares by the workers, devotes her whole energies b FIG.
But when Fabre substituted dead individuals of her own species or live larvae of another genus, the Osmia had no scruple in destroying them, so as to bite her way out to air and liberty.
With Apis, the genus of the hive-bee, we come to the most highly-specialized members of the family - better known,perhaps, than any other insects, on account of the long domestication of many of the species or races.

Apis dorsata workers are bout 17-19 mm (nearly 1 inch) long, and nest in the open, they make a single comb, usually on a tree branch and is 6-10 ft across (2-3 meters) and usually 10-60 ft (3-20 meters) from the ground.
Apis florea used to be the only species of the dwarf honey bee, but now it is recognized that there is a separate species of bees, Apis andreniformis.
Apis florea is more reddish and the first abdomen is always red in an old worker (younger workers are paler in color, as is the case in the giant honey bees), while A.

 BIBBA Bee Improvement and Bee breeding Association - honey bee conservation
The sub-family Apinae or honeybees, comprises a single genus, Apis, which is characterised by the building of vertical combs of hexagonal cells constructed bilaterally from a midrib, using only the wax secreted by the worker bees.
The genus Apis was thus enabled to colonise a wide variety of environments, ranging from tropical to cool temperate.
Two dozen geographic races of the Western Honeybee, Apis mellifera, have been recognised, adapted to a range of environments from the cold Continental climate of Eastern Europe, through the moist temperate climate of the Atlantic seaboard, the warmth of the Mediterranean, and the heat of the tropics and semi-deserts.

Honeybees of the genus Apis belong to the family Apidae, a sub-group of this superfamily.
As in the other Apis species, honey is stored in the upper part of the combs, but also in the outer combs, adjacent to the hive walls.
It appears that the adaptability of the bees, appropriate beekeeping technology, better understanding of forage ecology and socio-economic suitability are among the most important factors underlying the further development of beekeeping with the common honeybee in Asia.

There is some overlap in the range of sizes for Apis mellifera and Apis cerana with smaller races of the former (such as the source of the "africanized" strains migrating through California, Apis mellifera scutellata) being of a comparable size to the larger subspecies of Apis cerana cerana found in the Jumla region.

These are the Euglossini (orchid bees, 175+ known species, five genera [Cameron 2004]), Bombini (bumble bees, 239 species, all in the genus Bombus [Williams 1998]), Apini (honey bees, at least seven extant species, all in the genus Apis [Engel 1999]), and Meliponini (stingless bees, several hundred species, numerous genera [Michener 1990]).
The corbiculate bee tribes are thought to be of Mesozoic age because a fossil meliponine has been described from the late Cretaceous (~80 mya; Michener 2000 and references therein; Grimaldi 1999, Engel 2000b).
It is not clear which data set is providing the correct picture of corbiculate tribal relationships, although we suspect that the long branch leading to Apis and the highly unstable position of Apis within the different molecular data sets suggest that this branch of the tree may be creating problems.
